It's a triple Boa not just a double, so it's not a flaw really in the design, no other place left to put it... I haven't used them yet, so I'll see if it's a problem or not. I doubt it, since my pants will cover them
Ahh got it, mine were double BOAs. They should hold fine while wearing pants. I just tried them on with shorts and was rounding a corner. Shouldn't be a problem if I'm using them how they were meant to be used. Btw, fixing was SIMPLE. sent BOA Company an email, and they hooked me up for free. took 5-10 minutes to replace.
